Students toured Steeda Industries in Valdosta GA. Upon arrival students were greeted by the Marketing Manager at Steeda. He explained operations at Steeda, and why they exist. He shared that he started in an entry level position 20 plus years ago and that he worked hard to climb the ladder of positions at Steeda. He explained that if you want to succeed you can’t look for instant success but should plan to work hard to reach your goals. Students were taken on a tour of the operations, where they saw every part being made to make the Mustang a super-fast vehicle. Students could assist in spray coating one of the parts, and finally a teacher rode in one of the Mustangs. Students asked questions about employment while in high school and were provided info on Steeda’s student work-study program.
